NERVE ENDINGS (4:30pm) is our equivalent to a "midnight madness" program. Described by programmer Jeff Tran as the "cayenne pepper" of the festival, it may not sit well in your stomach if you are the faint of heart, depicting stories of suicide, murder, serial rapists and even a zombie!
Lineup includes Leaving a Pretty Corpse by Chris Moreira, Inkling by Shawna Steele, Milk and Honey by Marshall Lau, The Murdered Innocence by Abeer Qa'aty, Roofies and Romance by Cody Campanale and Possession by Daegan McNeany.
UPS AND DOWNS OF HUMAN INTERACTION (6pm) is our program of traditional narratives that deal with family and loved ones.
